“I found a warm and welcoming class with a super teacher in a lovely art studio, right by my house! My creative juices are flowing again thanks to you all.” – Penny Sidi


For over a century, the Educational Alliance Art School has provided opportunity for creative expression, skill acquisition, and arts appreciation for New Yorkers of all backgrounds and ages, and has hosted– both as students and as faculty–renowned artists including Chaim GrossPeter Blume, Adolph Gottlieb, Louise Nevelson, Mark Rothko, Max Weber, among others. Today, the Art School at Manny Cantor Center is one of New York City’s premier community art schools, offering a fresh selection of classes and workshops.

As a cultural resource, the Art School fosters an outlet for community engagement and dialogue in the arts through our gallery and public programs. We are committed to serving the greatest diversity of students, out of our belief that everyone, regardless of age, ethnicity, or socio-economic status, should have the opportunity for self-expression and lifelong learning.  Located in the newly renovated Manny Cantor Center, the Art School enters a new era with an exceptional facility, renewed educational offerings, and refined vision for best-in-class programming.
